52 Fridays Concert Series in the Gordie Brown Showroom

  • Blood, Sweat and Tears featuring Bo Bice: February 5, 2016 – 8:00pm
Founder Al Kooper conceived Blood, Sweat and Tears as an experiment in expanding the size and scope of the rock band with touches of jazz, blues, classical and folk music. When Kooper was forced out of the band soon after its eclectic debut, Child Is Father to the Man, BS&T became increasingly identified as a “jazz-rock” group, although its music was essentially easy-listening rhythm and blues or rock with the addition of brass. Now, featuring American Idol’s Bo Bice on vocals, Blood, Sweat and Tears is better than ever. Reestablishing themselves as one of the greatest touring acts around, this GRAMMY award-winning group will perform their greatest hits including “You Made Me So Very Happy,” “Spinning Wheel” and “Hi-De-Ho.”
  • Christopher Cross: February 12, 2016 – 8:00pm
Singer-songwriter Christopher Cross was by far the biggest new star of 1980, virtually defining adult contemporary radio with a series of smoothly sophisticated ballads including the number one hit, “Sailing.” Christopher Cross’ 1980 self-titled debut album with the lead single “Ride Like the Wind” rocketed to the number two spot, and the massive success of the second single “Sailing” made Cross a superstar. In the wake of two more top twenty hits, “Never Be the Same” and “Say You’ll Be Mine,” he walked off with an unprecedented and record-setting five GRAMMY awards in 1981, including Best New Artist and Song of the Year. To date, Cross is the only artist to have won Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist all in the same year. 
  • J.T. Taylor: Voice of Kool & the Gang: February 19, 2016 – 8:00pm
James “J.T.” Taylor, lead singer for Kool & the Gang from 1979 to 1988, presided over the group’s commercial, if not artistic, peak of the early to mid-80s. Although top ten placements were frequent from 1982 through 1987, Taylor left the band for a solo career in 1988, thanks in large part to the band’s success. After signing to Epic Records in 1988, Taylor found success with several hits, including “All I Want Is Forever” and “Long Hot Summer Night.” Most recently, Taylor released a new version of the band’s 1983 song “Joanna,” in 2013.
  • Johnny Rivers: February 26, 2016 – 8:00pm

Renowned rock and roll singer, songwriter, guitarist and record producer Johnny Rivers takes the stage for the first time at the Golden Nugget. With 17 songs in the Top 40, more than 25 million records sold in the ’60s and ’70s, and a powerful force in regaining an American foothold in the midst of Beatlemania, Rivers is an award-winning, world-class entertainer. Rivers was raised in Baton Rouge and, after learning to play the guitar from his father, began playing professionally at age 14, when he formed his first band. He went on to bring together the rhythm section that would define the West Coast sound of the ’60s. Don’t miss Rivers perform his top hits including “Baby I Need Your Lovin,” “Secret Agent Man,” and “Memphis.”
